We received overwhelming support from our NSW members for the special appeal sent via email on 16th December 2014. Within 6 days the contributions exceeded the target amount of $850

This funding request was made from the Zonal Director of Education Thirukkovil (through the Rotary club of Kalmunai), Eastern Province of Sri Lanka, asking for support and funding to provide exercise books to the needy students in three schools in Thirukovil Educational Zone. Most of the parents of these school children have been resettled after the conflict, still not able to support the needs of their children due to lack of steady income. The estimated cost of the request is $850.

Total amount received $925.00.

Here is the list of contributions received from members:
$100

Hartley Vs Jaffna Hindu College (Over 40 years)

[30 Dec 2014]

Played on 6 October 2014 at Jones Park, Parramatta

After early departure of the openers Kannan showed some resistance and scored 17 runs against some fine bowling by Ramesh from Jaffna Hindu followed by some big hitting by our star all-rounder Johnson who stroked 60 with five elegant boundaries. We finished with an impressive 196 runs.

Jaffna Hindu fell short of the target by scoring only 129 with notable contributions of 25 runs from Kukku and 20 from Suba. If you were not at the ground to witness then you have missed an entertaining match. Man of the match was Johnson for his sixty runs and 4 for 23 with the ball. Vasee who scored a courageous 39 runs in the lower order that included 2 towering sixes won the best batsman award. Best bowler was Ramesh from Jaffna Hindu.

Hartley won the match comfortably by 67 runs.
